The Rochester Knighthawks defeated the Philadelphia Wings 10-8 to advance to the East Division Final against the Minnesota Swarm on Saturday, May 4th at 4:00 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena.

The Knighthawks have advanced to the second round for the 14th time in their 19 seasons in the National Lacrosse League. They are 7-6 in the divisional final round, and are hosting only their fourth divisional final in franchise history. The Knighthawks have a 9-2 all-time record in postseason games at The Blue Cross Arena.

In the three previous home divisional finals, they are 3-0, last defeating the Buffalo Bandits 14-13 in overtime on April 27, 2007 en route to winning the 2007 Champion’s Cup.

The Knighthawks have never faced the Swarm in the postseason, but they have a 10-5 all-time series record against Minnesota, including a 5-2 record at home. Minnesota was the only team the Knighthawks did not play in the 2013 regular season. They split a home-and-home series in 2012.

The East Division Final will air live on the CBS Sports Network. It will mark the fourth time in five weeks that the Knighthawks will play in front of a national viewing audience. In the past two seasons, Rochester is 5-1 in games aired on the CBS Sports Network.

In the win over Philadelphia, forward Dan Dawson scored a game-high four goals. He surpassed Mark Steenhuis for seventh all-time in postseason goals scored with 43. “Dangerous Dan” is 5-0 in postseason games where he has scored four goals or more.
